Ann-Louise Sandahl, PhD in Art History and Visual Studies
In my research I explore if and how contemporary art works, films, and other kinds of visual expressions can create new understandings of time and contribute to a more long-termed and sustainable thinking. Some of the concepts I discuss in relation to art works are the anthropocene, the apocalypse and the posthuman. I also teach in the subject Eco-Aesthetics in Visual Culture.

Rut Blomqvist, PhD Student in English
Through a transdisciplinary approach, I study how works in the emerging climate fiction genre deal with environmental issues and how they envision a sustainable future. The authors I focus on – currently Kim Stanley Robinson, Margaret Atwood, and Jonathon Porritt – explicitly engage, both through their fiction and as public figures, in the environmental movement.
